agreement. >> joining me now is cnbc senior economic reporter steve liesman and jarod burnstein, former chief economist to vice president biden. good morning. steve, the immediate worries people need to have when they hear about this and they're coming back after a weekend off and hearing the news this monday morning. what does the downgrade mean for the american people right now? >> i think it means go back on vacation. it's certainly a better place than what's happening right now on wall street. skip the good and bad and go right to the ugly. we're down, you showed the numbers, i'll give you percentages, between 3% and 4% all the way up to the nasdaq. essentially, i think the concerns are what happens to your stock portfolios. there's another concern that's a little more controversial about interest rates. when you look at what's happened to u.s. government debt, remember, that's the thing that was downgraded. those yields have fallen. interest rates have declined there as you have essentially a flight to safety. so, despite the s&p downgrade, the united states debt is still seen as a
